Graphical Abstract:


Methyl eugenol olefin metathesis was conducted with non-carbene Ru-complexes ([RuCl2(PPh3)2amine]) in the absence and presence of SnCl2 or CuCl2 as additives and their catalytic activities were compared with that of a commercial Grubbs catalyst 2nd Generation (G2).

Keywords: Olefin metathesis, Methyl-eugenol, SnCl2, CuCl2, ruthenium, additives.
